One of the pillars of chasidic thought is the idea that people can comprehend God better through their actions - specifically, by performing mitzvos (sacred deeds) - than by meditation. This concept is the basis for the beliefs and observances of Chasidism, founded by the Ba'al Shem Tov in the eighteenth century. Rabbi Noson Gurary discusses Chasidism in a straightforward and authentic manner, without diluting the profound teachings of this unique tradition.
